  • Location is great and staff was friendly. Very clean and comfortable hostel except for the temperature in the rooms. There is no A/C and there was a very tiny window in the room I was (4 female dorm). They put a small individual fa on each bed but that's not enough. It was too hot inside.

  • Overpriced compared to other hostels we have stayed at (in capital/popular cities). It may be the 'same price' as other hostels/options in the area but it was POOR VALUE FOR MONEY. Generally felt ripped off. Lack of bathrooms. Simple issues aren't fixed e.g. fixing a shower head so the shower actually works properly. The hostel smelt of damp/drains/sewage - our sink backed up, suggesting drains aren't clean. The place generally felt neglected - only commands price due to location. Go to a motel.

  • I was in transit in Los Angeles and was looking for a nice place to spend the night. I chose Samesun because this hostel is located across from the beach. By taking a shuttle to the airport, I arrived after 30 minutes and I already had my feet in the water. J'étais en transit à Los angeles et je cherchais un endroit agréable où passer la nuit. J'ai choisi Samesun car cette auberge de jeunesse est situé en face de la plage. En prenant une navette à l'aéroport, je suis arrivée après 30 minutes
